Garden furniture can bring 'perfect rustic style indoors'

22/10/2010 Interior design fans looking to create the warmth and cosiness of a log cabin in their home this winter have been told that a hardwood garden furniture set could be just what they need.

Blogging on, Hazel Jennings suggested that, since outdoor living has been gaining popularity and "expanding options" in recent years, wooden furniture for the kitchen and dining room is now widely available.

Ms Jennings went on to say that, decorated with pottery and natural textiles, such style choices will allow people to be "transported" to a simpler era when there was always time for a big family dinner.
